Clinicians wishing to use NETS should select from the options available
via the NETS Line.
After selecting the option required, please introduce yourself to the
coordinator stating your full name, where you are calling from and
specify that you wish to discuss a retreival with NETS. Don't take too
much time to outline the clinical problem since the coordinator will
generally not have an opportunity to relay what you say to the NETS
Consultant. You'll find yourself repeating yourself.
The NETS Coordinator will connect you with a NETS' consultant in a
conference call which includes the duty NETS teams. Others, such as
consultants in likely destination hospital neonatal ICU, paediatric ED or
paediatric ICU may join the call. Other sub-specialist experts may be
The NETS' consultant will act as 'chairman' and introduce new
participants to you in turn. You may already know someone who joins a
NETS' conference call but please wait for the formal
introduction; otherwise you may start having a one-to-one
conversation without realising there are others on the line.
When it comes to telling the story, we recommend the 'LISBAR' framework for communication.
